If you’ve been following this blog for any time at all, you’ll probably know I’m a bit obsessed with this book—and for very good reason, because it’s absolutely fantastic—and I even had the pleasure of hosting a readalong for it alongside two giveaways, which was thoroughly exciting!
And so it should really come as no surprise that as this book gets the honor of recognition from Bookbub TOMORROW—cue loud screeches—that I’ll be screaming about it on here. In fact, this news is actually part of the reason why I decided to come back to blogging early as I’m sure many of you know by now that I’ve been completely swamped with work.
But this is a pretty momentous occasion and I’m so thrilled for Erin and Steven because they 100% deserve the recognition for all that they do and the amazing writing they have shared with readers around the world. And as if they weren’t amazing enough already, but they’re making The Wendy’s ebook FREE for the event and several days afterward.
So, if you’ve been meaning to get this book and haven’t had the money or if you’ve only just heard of it and you’re curious, please, please make sure to get yourself over to whichever website you buy your books from and download a copy to rave about with me. It’s well worth it. This book, a feminist retelling of Peter Pan, is literally one of the best books I’ve ever read.
And if you’re not sold already, read my review for The Wendy to see if it’s for you!
And you can also read the synopsis below:
THE WRONG KIND OF HERO.
“Girls can’t be in the navy! Girls take care of babies! You’re so stupid, you don’t know anything!”
London. 1783. Wendy Darling is an orphan, living in an overcrowded almshouse, ridiculed for believing in a future she can never have. More than anything in the world, she wants to be the captain of a ship. But that’s impossible. Isn’t it?
By 1789, she’s sixteen, old enough to be sold into service as a dressmaker or a servant. When she learns the Home Office is accepting a handful of women into its ranks, she jumps at the chance, joining the fight against the most formidable threat England has ever faced. Magic.
But the secret service isn’t exactly what she had hoped. Accompanied by a reimagined cast of the original Peter Pan, Wendy soon discovers that her dreams are as far away as ever, that choosing sides isn’t as simple as she thought, and that the only man who isn’t blinded by her gender… might be her nation’s greatest enemy.
As always, happy reading to you all!
